Designed with both the professional chef and home cook in mind, the extensive, paddle-shaped Gourmet Series was enhanced in design and function. It looks sleek and offers ample grating and shaving surface, soft-touch handles, plus non slip rubber ends for added stability. It's long-lasting, ultra sharp, and made from high quality stainless steel. Dishwasher safe and easy to store due to the reusable protective cover. The Gourmet Series Fine Grater is ideal for grating all types of citrus peel without lifting off the fruit’s bitter tasting pith. It is also the perfect kitchen tool for grating a variety of hard spices – such as nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and cloves – that can add subtle or robust flavors to recipes. Fine grated ginger is ideal for adding a flavor to many Asian receipes.
